[webkit-dev] Tips to build faster on Mac?

Being new to WebKit development (and also switching from Linux to Mac), I
find my workflow relatively clumsy. Building on a fresh checkout usually
takes me 20+ minutes even on my 12-core Mac Pro. Fastest incremental builds
are ~2 minutes. This adds a lot to the develop / test / debug cycle.

I heard the good folks from Igalia working on the GTK port use icecc. Has
anyone used this on Mac? Any other productivity tips?
